Luscombe's Golden Age

Luscombe's Golden Age
by John Swick

Luscombe's Golden Age is the fifth book in The Golden Age of Aviation Series. John Swick, the author, has completely revised and updated the original The Luscombe Story published in 1987, including approximately 100 new pages of text, dozens of never-before published photographs and Luscombe magazine ads from that era. Included in this book are detailed accounts and descriptive 3-view scale drawings of each Luscombe model manufactured, including the early models: Phantom, Ghost, Spectre, Harpie, Small Transport and Sprite. Also included are all the details and drawings of Luscombe's later and more popular models: Luscombe 50, Luscombe 65, Luscombe Silvare models: 8A, 8C, 8D, 8E, Model 10, Model 11A, Luscombe Pusher Model 12, Model X11, Model 8F, military Model T8F, 11C, Model 8G, and the Weatherly-Campbell Colt. The book includes the details on Don Luscombe, other members of the management and engineering teams, and the efforts and successes of the company after Luscombe left the company in 1939. The management of Leopold H.P. Klotz is delved into, along with the management and production of Temco. This is far the most complete book ever published on the Luscombe aircraft, facilities and staff. The book even brings readers up-to-date with recent challenges for control of the Luscombe rights. The Golden Age of Aviation Series highlights a number of aircraft manufacturers during the 1900s, 1910s, 1920s, 1930s & 1940s. The series presents an historical look at Aviation’s Golden Years through detailed text, numerous photos, internationally acclaimed 3-view airplane scale drawings, archival materials and original magazine ads of the era.

300 pages, SB, 8.5x11, 400 photos, annual production figures, 62 3-view scale and technical drawings, appendices

The most comprehensive and informative publication on luscombes to date
by TONY GARCIA. from GOSHEN KY USA 

Pros: 100 %
Cons: NONE
Review: This is by far, to-date, the best resource on the luscombe history and line. My mother was Don Luscombe's secretary when he was contracted by Reynolds Metals as a consultant to expedite mass production of alum. components for the commercial aircraft industry in the late '30's. This was shortly after he was "ousted" from his own company.   During her tenure as secretary, she flew many times with Brownee, his wife at that time. In later years, when I was a kid, we owned a T8F Observer....circa 1949.  Sadly, there is no mention of his involvement with Reynolds Metals in any publications that I have perused. If any one can refer me to same, I would be pleased. The afforemention story is true, i assure you. Don Luscombe w-a-s a consultant for Reynolds Metals in Louisville, KY. during that period. My mother (86yrs) and my dad (92yrs) an AAF/USAFf vet of 40yrs, just recently passed away. My mom always talked about Brownee's dog's that accompanied her always. I look forward to any commentary regarding the above story...........
